What makes this stand out: These are the ORIGINAL versions of the hits, just as they sounded on the radio (in the U.S., at least). (There are some "alternate" versions out there---extra screams, etc.---I prefer the original versions!) Included here are also some nice surprises...songs that may have not been monster smashes, but they are ALL great.I'll tell you what...Isn't something like "Do You Love Me" or "Glad All Over" miles better than nearly anything on the radio today???
The Beatles were always numero uno at our house in the sixties...but the DC-5 came close! I cannot ever imagine changing the radio station if any one of these tracks was booming away. Mike, Dave, Rick, Denny,and Lenny.....THANK YOU! What a thrilling musical legacy...sounds just as great after all these years.
Here's the breakdown on this set: Sound Quality: 5 stars. Packaging: Deluxe liner notes, first rate in every regard EXCEPT....NO SHRINKWRAP! Hence the deduction of 1 star...otherwise 5 stars all the way.
